SOD Project | Guillaume Lehoux

• October 29, 2010

A french product designer Guillaume Lehoux designed the SOD Project which was based on the results of a NASA experiment.

This experiment was designed to study the influence of certain psychoactive substances on the behavior of living things. The researchers inoculated the test substances (marijuana, caffeine, benzedrine and chloral hydrate) to spiders and then let them weave their webs.

Patterns of each webs make visible in a graphical way the action of each studied substance.

In nature, spider webs are traps, they are used to catch unwary insects which venture to them. This project uses the graphic results of the NASA experiment to design a serie of five “retaining objects” like the spider web (fruit baskets, loose change trays, …).
